The extended Emma Stone/Ryan Gosling exchange in this weeks ‘opsis was a thing of beauty. Kudos, Mr Wand.
I’m kind of glad I didn’t manage to send in a 3×3 this week, since I probably would have punted and included the Indiana Jones hat, and listening to Tom’s fail at predictions and math was way more entertaining than anything I could’ve contributed.
Also, you guys should totally see The Good, The Bad, The Weird.
I’ll never think of Pizza Hut stuffed crust the same way again…
Hooray for the return of a full-sized -opsis! Never again, Kelly Wand!
So there won’t be a Jack Reachopsis? Also, in honor of Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, you do movies that depict any kind of interaction between an adult brother and sister.
My ‘pick up the milk’ moment was when Ribisi’s kid handed him a screwdriver or some such as he was brainstorming the wiretap. As he helped his dad, I immediately thought ‘poor kid’.
Yay, a hat 3×3! I have to catch up on my podcast listenin!
How could I have forgotten Dark City? Nuts!
I think it holds up, especially the newish Director’s version.
Wait did my picks get lost again??
Three movies that rock the hat. Easy, peasy.
3. Oddjob’s deadly bowler hat in Goldfinger. Hat as a weapon! 2. The Fedoras on the agents in the Adjustment Bureau, and the (spoiler!) special ability it gives them. 1. The top hat Daniel Day Lewis’ Bill the Butcher rocks in Gangs of New York. It made an already tall character and actor seem even taller and more impressive.
